The human body represents the most important topic for many researchers. In the case of dental medicine, because of the nature of the teeth material, the dimensions and the geometrical position, a very important problem, like fractures, cannot be study with practical classic engineering tools, such as tensometric markers. Under these conditions, the finite element method represents the only method that helps and indicates what is hapening in the structure of maxilar bone and teeth. This paper

In the work, stress and deformation are calculated for different forces acting on the superior zone of the implant. The results are important and gives dental practicians information for the every day work.
